Another year goes by, and yet another delay was announced for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night. News of the delay was delivered in a video by Koji Igarashi via the game’s Kickstarter page, and is now set to launch in 2019, but without an exact date.
The reason of the delay is to allow Igarashi’s team to raise the level of quality, especially after receiving valuable feedback from the game’s beta demo that was released a while back.
For those who’ve been keeping track of Bloodstained’s development, this isn’t the first time that the game was delayed; iit was originally planned for a March 2017 release but was pushed back to this year.
Also announced in the video is the cancellation of Bloodstained’s Playstation Vita port.
“This decision is largely due to Sony’s plans to discontinue the Vita console, ending production of physical copies and stopping certain online store support features,” Igarashi said.
Backers who chose the Vita version of the game are given the choice to choose a different platform or request a refund. A similar situation occurred last year when the Wii U port of Bloodstained was no longer planned.
